I haven't got a name for them yet, maybe something like HERMES, but it must be a Greek god...hmm, we'll see.
So this is a very early mock-up with blue tack.
The Twin-MG is a spare I created for the ZEUS, with a large screen, the seat is also a leftover from the ZEUS and was originally the master for the interior seats mold. The engine tank is a standard fuel tank from the vehicles sprue und the two smaller tanks/cylinders are flamethrower tanks.
All is mounted on two railings, which will be inside the larger wheels.
The top railing.
And within the wheels.
Once I was rather confident of the layout, I started to glue it all together. In the rear I attached a communications assembly.
And I created the actual drive section - pretty much like a steam train drive.
From this side you can also see the holding assembly for the lasrifle.
Pedals and steering.
And the rear.
Before I start with the details I will have to figure a gun mount - actually I'm tinkering with the idea of adding two small bolters to the sides too - and then balance it all out.
The idea is to add like a planes tail, with fins and stabilizers as a counterweight for the forward guns. This would also give me a plausible means for steering.
